Blue Collar Bioinformatics (bcbio; is community developed methods for variant calling, RNA-seq, small RNA and ChiP-seq analyses. We work together to build openly available, practical, validated tools for working with high throughput sequencing data.

At the MIT BIG meeting I'll provide a followup on our proposals last year to move bcbio to use Common Workflow Language (CWL; for describing workflows. We run full workflows across multiple environments using CWL and will discuss:

We support bcbio CWL development at the Harvard Chan Bioinformatics core ( through collaborations with AstraZeneca Oncology (, AstraZeneca Centre for Genomics Research (, The University of Melbourne Centre for Cancer Research ( and Veritas (

You're welcome to attend in person at MIT if you're in the Boston area. The presentation will also be online through Zoom for remote participation and we'll record the talk and make it available.
